Geophysical surveys due onshore Tanzania

Tanzania Petroleum Development Corp. has let a contract to CGG for geophysical surveys over two onshore areas in preparation for future licensing rounds.

CGG will acquire high-resolution gravity gradiometry and aeromagnetic data over the southeastern Tanzanian coastal basin and eastern arm of the East African rift.

Surveys of areas totaling 30,000 sq km will begin in mid-August and take up to 2 months. CGG also will interpret the data.

CGG notes that Tanzania’s parliament recently passed a petroleum bill recognizing TPDC as a national oil company able to participate fully in exploration and production.
